It’s pretty stunning what one track can do. Back in 2013, London Grammar not only seized our hearts, but gently pulled it into space and wrapped it in a blanket of red-raw honesty and dazzling spectral gazes. It was the sort of refreshing electro-tinged sounds that made you stop everything, a magic treat for the ears that was the sweetest treat anyone could try. With ‘Rooting For You’, those memories come flooding back - stepping out from the shadows and slowly turning that light dimmer up on their next bold step.

Hannah Reid’s voice soothes like a preacher at a pulpit, a reassuring hand on the shoulder for a year that sits as big as it does terrifying. Allowing space and room around every moment, it’s the sort of track that finds strength in its vulnerability - an instant trigger of hairs on the back of necks around the world. With a lush symphony guiding you home, ‘Rooting For You’ is London Grammar doing what they do best, and in the process offers a glimpse of how important this band have become.

It’s the chilling opening credit we need for 2017, and one that welcomes London Grammar into a unique club of bands who at every infliction signal emotions that most could never put to paper. ‘Rooting For You’ is the hopeful vision for a year that’s more important than most - which with one four minute listen can change the way we look out the window. It’s a new day, a new year - a moment to take the darkness and switch it into light. It’s pretty stunning what one track can do. Jamie Muir
